Vietnam contributes to Transport and Climate Change Week

At the Transport Week and Climate Change’s first dedicated Asia session, the Department of Environment of Vietnam’s Ministry of Transport discussed with representatives from the Turkish Ministry of Environment and Urbanisation (MoEU) on the digital monitoring, reporting and verification of transport emissions, exchanged with Japan on their MRV system, and with the University of the Philippines on Capacity Building for MRV. Additionally, a representative of the Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement introduced the updated requirements of the UNFCCC Enhanced Transparency Framework.

The Transport and Climate Change Week is organised by GIZ on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) financed by the International Climate Initiative (IKI). It took place in the week from 21st to 25th of June, in Berlin and online. Under the NDC Transport Initiative for Asia, GIZ organised a range of sessions on decarbonising carbon transport, joined by policymakers worldwide. Also, the Women on the Move Network was launched, with the purpose to strengthen the role of women in transport. One day of the event was dedicated to Electric 2- and 3-Wheelers in the morning, and Pathways for Transport Decarbonisation in the afternoon.

Viet Nam has been an active contributor to Transport and Climate Change for years, offering new inputs and commitments to sustainable transport.

During the Webinar “Monitoring Transport Emissions in Asia” Mr. Tran Anh Duong – Director General of the Department of Environment, Ministry of Transport highlighted the country’s ambition in transport and climate change and expressed his appreciation for the experience shared by other countries’ representatives and experts. He stated: “We’d like to send our special thanks to the speakers today for your valuable contributions, for example the experience of Turkish government on MRV system would be really useful for Viet Nam.”
